    I check my income from parked.com drop from $20/day to $2 per day. Another MFA drops from $40/day to $3 per day. Adsense uses only 1/4th of my traffic but produce 2 times at much. As usual.

    I said WTF?

    I check around. Only chinese traffic seems affected. I check and see that I am still indexed by baidu. All my sites are still fine and not blocked in China.

    Then I check my program.

    I went through the code step by step.

    FUUUUUCCCCCKKKKK

    sizeof ($somevariable) always produce 0 while count ($somevariable) will produce correct result.

    I thought they're equivalent?

    Also it happens when my internet connection is death and parked.com is down. So I can check parked.com via back up connection but cannot see my stats. I cannot check adsense income because it's on the computer with main internet connection.

    3 days my sites are like that. Total lost: $180-$240.

    Now, if the amount of traffic I have fluctuates wildly, adsense ban hammer will get notified. I can lost thousands again.

    All due to change of a little code.

    This would not have happened if I have a way to check how my sites look from China. I need Chinese AVN. Also it's hard to see the problem. The site resolves fine from my place. Only time consuming step by step going through the code will reveal what happened. Problem solved by the way.

    I shouldn't have said, I lost $240. After all, I didn't. It's just money I should have earned. I should say I am still making $80/day residual income. Not as much as it used to be, but great. Keep things positive. Look from the upside. And I learn a lot from this experience. If it ain't no broke, ain't no fix it.
